Conference on Sustainability in Engineering

University on Northern British Columbia 2019

About CSE 2019

Taking place February 22nd - 25th, 2019

CSE is a three day, national conference that will gather top engineering students from across Canada to learn about sustainability and discuss its applicability to their engineering career and everyday life. It will be a stage for student leaders to share their passion and ideas of sustainability to like-minded peers and professionals. The goal of the conference is to provide students with the necessary knowledge to be able to balance social, economic, and environmental factors in the decision making process throughout their careers. These three components make up the triple bottom line which is the theme for CSE 2019.

The conference will have an optional but recommended  LEED green associates certification course which will provide all the necessary information in order to obtain the certification. The other option is a case study in which teams will work together to present a feasible, sustainable solution to a real-world engineering problem. CSE will also provide delegates with esteemed keynote speakers, technical workshops, and engaging discussions in which students will be able to collaborate on ideas in order to create a sustainable future. 

University of Northern British Columbia

CSE 2019 will be proudly hosted by the University of Northern British Columbia, otherwise known as Canada’s Green University. UNBC is a perfect place to hold the inaugural year of CSE as we are a leader in sustainability with programs heavily focusing on natural resources and sustainability. Located in Prince George, UNBC is surrounded by pristine environments and friendly communities.

Our university is home to a Platinum LEED certified bioenergy plant, one of the tallest wood buildings in North America (WIDIC), the first industrialized passive house in North America (WIRL) as well as experts in sustainable studies and passionate students working towards building a better future. With the expansion of our engineering department in 2019; a full environmental and civil engineering program, the university, as well as the City of Prince George is ecstatic and is in full support of this conference. Although UNBC is a small university, it has plenty to offer.
